Re: Maybe the stuff in the Trans Mountian pipeline could go the these guys Chaos in Europe
The Maritimes and Quebec get their oil from non-Canadian sources because that is the cheapest and most efficient way to do so. Sure we could have a national energy policy, or some similarly named thing, and aim for self sufficiency but subsidizing the effort would be going against the central tenets of the free markets, capitalism, etc.. Also not sure that excluding American oil and gas flies under our current trade deals, especially considering the enormous efforts we put into expanding the sale of our commodities to them. I personally wouldn't be against it but still wonder why we never heard of such things when the profits were flowing and everyone in Calgary was laughing their way to the bank. Hmmm.
